Alaria Esculenta


This brown algae, sourced in Brittany, is rich in essential fatty acids and sterols, making it an effective skin moisturiser. Also known as winged kelp, it demonstrates anti-elastase activity which results in firmer-feeling skin.


(Persea gratissima)

Legendary for its healthy fat content and emollient properties, the avocado is native to Central America. To extract the vitamin-rich, skin-nourishing oil, the succulent flesh of the ripe fruit is squeezed.


(Borago officinalis)

Renowned for its fantastic moisturising properties, we source our borage from England, where the pure, GLA-rich oil is pressed from the shiny, dark brown seeds of the bright blue flower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT THE SAME I used this for many years and loved it. So pleased to find it again in Boots- however it is not the same product. It is much less like a sheer tint as it used to be and more a foundation- which don’t want. The colour is also different from the original. If I had kept the receipt I would return it. So disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please listen to your customers I am so bitterly disappointed in the new formula. I used to adore this product - nothing could even come close. I’d even go as far as saying I would’ve used it for the rest of my life. BUT the new formula is awful. The beige colour is more pinky toned and makes me look slightly red. It also gets very greasy fast and just does nothing for me. My complexion actually looks better without anything on despite it being fairly uneven. This wears really badly and generally makes me look worse. I am so incredibly gutted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible coverage Thought this would be dewy and moisturising. Wasn't a good coverage as I had to mix it with my usual moisturiser. Very matt and not dewy at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for very dry flaky skin I have always suffered from very dry, flaky skin and struggle to find a foundation or tinted moisturiser that doesn't make me look worse, not better! I've loved the Sheer Skin tint ever since it was launched. Yes, it's much more oily than any other tinted moisturiser I've tried (and I've tried a lot), but that's what I love about it, especially for the summer, as the sun dehydrates my skin even more. I only use a really small amount - a pea-sized blob does my whole face and neck, and my skin stays dewy and moisturised all day. With every other brand of foundation or tinted moisturiser I've tried, my skin starts to feel tight and looks flat by mid afternoon. It provides a beautiful light coverage that evens out my light/medium skintone, hides minor imperfections but doesn't hide my freckles (I'm a redhead) and my skin still looks natural, For reviewers who find it too oily, they may just be using too much. For me, this is a hero product for me - please don't ever discontinue it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best makeup ever! I bought this a month ago and am so pleased with it. I don't like wearing makeup but unfortunately due to my age my skin tone has got very uneven and has blemishes etc. I wanted a coverage which was very natural looking and didn't feel heavy. This product is perfect. It is so light and has great coverage. You wouldn't think you had make up on at all. Well done Liz Earle. yet another product to add to all my others. Highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring the old version back! Used to be a fantastic product but it changed into something that enhances the lines around my eyes? Now I only remember it in my dreams...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light coverage that makes your skin glow I have been using this product for years and it’s my absolute favourite. I’ve never got on with foundation and have sensitive skin. I love how light and soft this feels on your skin. It makes your skin glow without looking like you’re wearing make up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product! Honestly the best makeup product I've ever used. They discontinued it a while back and I'm so glad they bought it back...other foundations I have used are just not as good. Gives good light coverage and makes my skin glow. Cannot recommend enough!

How would i know the best colour to buy?

Asked by: Emmaroid
I use 02 Beige. My skin colour is fair being English. Beige is a little darker than when my skin colour is a some what pale during the Winter. However, it gives me a healthier look. It does of course depend on your skin colour.
